Question about 1997 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

Just changed rear disc brakes on 1997 Deville, now when I drive it seems as though the rear brakes aren't totally releasing, like it takes more power to take off... What might the problem be and how do I fix it?

Hello pastormikim, 1. To install the drive belt route the belt though allpulleys except the power steering pulley. 2. Take a 1/2 inch drive breaker bar and insert it intothe 1/2 corresponding hole on the belt tensioner. 3. Push down on the breaker bar to release the tensionand install the belt over the power steering pump pulley. 4. Carefully release the breaker bar to allow thetensioner to return to its rest position. 5. Check that the belt is fully engaged on each pulley. 6. Start the engine and make sure the belt andaccessories are working properly. Regards, netvan

Left rear wheel will not turn at all and is locked on. The right rear is just dragging. The handbrake appears to have released normally. Car is a one year old small Chrysler - it belonds to a friend and is...


Does the car have drums or disc brakes on the rear? If it has drums then the handbrake lever may not be releasing on the rear shoe itself or a spring or brake lining could have let go and got jammed. If the handbrake lever is the problem then removing the wheel and striking the drum with a large ball peen hammer should release it (may be barbaric but it works), this will not solve the problem the brakes would have to be removed and serviced or replaced depending on the problem. If the vehicle however has disc brakes on the rear then the caliper on that wheel may have become stuck or seized, normally they are replaced nowadays if this occurs since rebuild kits are not readily available. Still with disc brakes could also have stuck pad in its guide on the bracket, although much less likely, also tends to be less costly since you only have to remove and clean it up (rust, etc). If the handbrake is inside the rotor (internal drum), then you could have a problem with the shoes or lever releasing inside the rotor (depending on the setup on the rear). As well if it were not brakes in very, very rare occasions a wheel bearing could lock up, not very likely though. hope this will help you good luck

I had the same problem with my 98 Cadillac Deville. I changed the power steering pump and the hose that runs to the rack. The problem was solved, loud noises and whining stopped.

Rear Brakes not loosening up on Mustang


Did you turn the pistons in to allow room for new pads. The calipers are also for your parking brake and need to be turns in when replacing pads.
